    I like the shade, nice and dark brown. But don't care for the packaging. The tip keeps breaking off - and it's not cheap! I like the UrbanDecay Waterline eye pencil. Now that one glides on easily & it stays on my waterline all day.

          This is a great product. I purchased black, brown and brown w/ shimmer. They're highly pigmented, go on smoothly and do not smudge at all. The only drawback is that they do not last very long. This is my second purchase of the black one and it loos as if I will need to buy another brown one soon. Unsure if I will continue purchasing these over time. I do LOVE the BROWN SHIMMER! I may continue to purchase this one.

          Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

          I had to search long and hard to find an eyeliner that wouldn't fade or run down my face. This is the one and only eyeliner tat I use now. Its GREAT for getting thin lines at first and the self-sharpening cap is really convenient. The one thing I would say is that if you're getting to get a very thin line of eyeliner, I might not recommend this liner. All in all, because I don't use it for thin lines I LOVE this product.

              I've tried a lot of eyeliners but love this Smashbox version. The color is perfect (hard to find a good navy blue) and It glides on really smoothly without being overly wet/messy. It doesn't run and stays in place all day. Would not call this a con at all but, I do have to use a separate eye makeup remover as it doesn't always come off with just facial cleanser. Love Supremely Gentle Eye Make-up Remover by Kiehl's for removing this eyeliner.

                How "long" is the product, in terms of the eye liner inside the plastic? I got one of these in a sample and it was gone after about 10 uses that made me very sad! Trying to figure out if this sample was the full size or truly, a sample.

                  Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off (do not twist and click, or pump) a mold in the lid reshapes the tip of your liner, so your pencil is Always Sharp. You should definitely get more than 10 uses out of this product.

                  Hi There! Smashbox is cruelty free. Saturate a cotton round with your favorite makeup remover and place on your lids for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds the liner should have loosened and you'll be able to wipe it away in long, even, gentle strokes

                  Hi There! Yes there is is. As you twist the cap on an off a sharpener in the lid refines and feeds the tip, so your pencil is Always Sharp.

                  A:

                  Try these steps:

                  Put the cap on the liner.
                  Then, put your left hand on the cap and your right hand on the base.
                  Twist your right hand in the direction of the arrow and your left hand the opposite way.
                  You will feel that you have to twist past a point of tension; proceed, and you will hear a click.
                  Remove the cap.

                  That should sharpen it!
